    Amaretto Chicken

    List of Ingredients

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1/2 cup bread crumbs
    2 ounces slivered almonds
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
    1/2 cup flour (plus pinch of salt and pepper added)
    1 egg, beaten

    Heat oil in a large frying pan. Combine bread crumbs and almonds in a small bowl. Dredge chicken breasts
    in flour, then in beaten egg, then in bread crumb mixture. Saute 4-5 minutes, turning twice, until golden
    brown. (if chicken is thick, I recommend covering pan while sauteing.)

    Sauce Part
    1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    2 cups fat-free half and half
    1 cup apple juice
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1/8 cup water

    1/2 ounce green onions, chopped
    1 ounce Amaretto liquer
    1 large apple, cored and sliced thin
    1/2 teaspoon sugar

    To make sauce, combine white pepper, half and half, and apple juice in a saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring
    frequently. Mix cornstarch and water until smooth. Add to sauce; stir until thickened. Add green onion, Amaretto, apple, and sugar. Serve over chicken.

    Recommended: cook the chicken first, then cook the sauce. Sauce needs constant attention and is best to
    use immediately. Chicken is very good even without the sauce.
